dont want to use google desktop search

windows search sucks ass, one of my most hated chores is finding something on my hard drive

do you use something different?

edit: im good with linux command line, way better than with DOS if there are alternate CLI's I can search with

http:// www.cygwin.com

It's a windows port of many of the GNU tools plus the bash shell (amongst others). if you install it you have access to find, locate, whereis, grep, sed, etc., etc., ad infinitum....

Cheers,
